Car accidents, especially those that involve fatalities, can be emotionally taxing on law enforcement officers. While they may be able to shut off their emotions to get the job at hand done, the feelings of stress and sadness cannot be held at bay forever. When an officer gets a call to respond to an accident, they never know what they will find.
Sadly, a crash in South Carolina earlier in December took the life of a Clarendon Memorial Hospital nurse. Her husband was the first law enforcement officer to arrive on the scene.
According to reports, Teresa Browder was driving in Sumter County when an SUV crossed the center line. That SUV struck Browder’s car head-on. She was killed at the scene of the accident. The driver of the SUV and the driver of another vehicle involved in the accident were both taken to a nearby hospital for medical attention.
Sheriff Anthony Dennis said, “Today was a tragic day for one of our officers, as well as our entire agency, as one of our family members deals with the loss of a loved one. We ask you keep the Browder family in your thoughts and prayers as they cope with this horrible tragedy.”
